Springsteen Joins Stewart Salute Again

Just a few days after delivering back-to-back marathon performances in Pittsburgh (story), Bruce Springsteen was on stage at the Beacon Theater for his friend Jon Stewart of The Daily Show and former president Bill Clinton at the 5th annual benefit for the Bob Woodruff Foundation. The Max Weinberg Big Band was also in the lineup for the fundraiser named in honor of the ABC News correspondent.  Springsteen went on early in the night's festivities, opening with Open All Night from the Nebraska album before swinging into a full band backed version of Spirit in The Night that got Bruce into the audience and dancing in the aisle.  He ended his set on a somber note, doing Land Of Hope & Dreams, but was later back tearing things up on Long Tall SallySpringsteen also put the acoustic guitar, his shirt and harmonica he played up for auction, bringing in a high bid of $160,000 from a bidder that then gave the guitar to Andrew Kinkaid, a veteran that lost his legs in battle during the Iraq war who had spoken earlier in the program.
